I remember the spooky feeling of watching The Twilight Zone one night as a little boy in one-piece pajamas with feet, and I have seen episodes of it off and on for years, most of them many times. But somehow, I never saw this one until tonight. At 62, it was a shock to discover a "new" episode, and a real thrill to see this gem for the very first time. It's a simple, beautiful story that unfolds slowly and patiently. I won't say anything about the story, just encourage you to see it.
